LibreOffice includes several applications that make it the most powerful Free and Open Source office suite on the market. It used to read and Write, Create spreadsheets, Draw the vector graphics and flowcharts, Base (databases), and Math (formula editing). It is so simple to install LibreOffice-6.0 on LinuxMint 18.03 and this tutorial covers the ground on the same process.


First, We have to check Default version of LibreOffice on linuxmint18.03

linuxhelp ~ # libreoffice -v

And then to add the latest version, add the following repository

linuxhelp ~ # add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
You are about to add the following PPA:
 LibreOffice test builds and backports

This PPA will have what the Document Foundation calls "LibreOffice fresh", the latest release of the newest series (but no alpha/beta releases).

There is a PPA dedicated to specific LibreOffice major series which support a range of older Ubuntu releases too: ("Fresh") ("Still") (EOL)
Executing: /tmp/tmp.5GcqfJf5zg/ --keyserver

Before we installing the LibreOffice application you should update system repository
